Tube Notes

MUST-SEE: "Everybody Loves Raymond," 8 p.m., CBS. The balance of Ray’s world has been based on eternal truths: Ray, the New York sportswriter, is the successful one; his brother, the cop, always will envy him. This rerun turns that premise upside down. Ray gets bad news and Robert gets good news. The results are hilarious.

"The Pretender 2001," 8 p.m. and 10 p.m., TNT. When this above-average series was cancelled, there were plans to have one final movie answer all its mysteries. In stepped TNT, with this as the first of several movies. Jarod (Michael T. Weiss) was raised at The Centre, which used his brainpower for evil. He escaped and keeps changing jobs and identities to do good. Meanwhile, Miss Parker tries to catch him and drag him back. Now an assassin is grabbing their attention. You’ll emerge perplexed, but it’s a fascinating ride.

"100 Centre Street," 7 p.m., A&E. The story starts with Ramon — a young defense lawyer — having a sexual fling. Then the aftershocks echo. The result is a powerful and sobering hour for this darkly compelling new drama.

"Jazz," 9 p.m., PBS. The last episode left us in the middle of the swing era. This one starts there, in 1937; it catches the emergence of such greats as Count Basie and Billie Holiday.

"Gideon’s Crossing," 9 p.m., ABC. A young woman commits suicide after accusing resident Dr. Bruce Cherry of sexual misconduct.
